Monkees Considering Davy Jones Memorial Concert

(Gibson) Micky Dolenz has said that there could be a Monkees memorial concert for Davy Jones but he doubts the band can continue without the "Manchester Cowboy."

The Monkees drummer told Billboard.com: "We've had a sort of unspoken, I guess, agreement over the years that if it's just two of us getting together we never called it the Monkees... I can see us getting together to do a memorial concert, of course, but right now I can't imagine anything else happening without the Manchester Cowboy."

Dolenz also said that he, Peter Tork and Michael Nesmith would probably not attend Jones's funeral out of respect for Jones's family. He said, "My understanding is they want to avoid a media circus and... the family wants to keep it very, very low-key and very, very private.

"You can imagine as soon as one or two or any of us were to show up, it would very quickly be degraded into something that I don't think his immediate family would want to deal with. So I'm kind of respecting their wishes, whatever their wishes may be." more on this story
